It is gratifying to learn that work has

A white man made considerable noine
yesterday about an outrage that ho alleged
had been perpetrated upon him by two
other white men named Jno. Murphy and
Charles Smith, whom he charged
ith enticing him into an Ohio
levee eatinc stand and there forcibly
"going through his pockets'' and "lifting"
therefrom lucre tu the amount of thirty
dollars. Murohv and Smith wore arrestoi
by the officers after some search; but tbo
officers found upon closely questioning tho
complainant that he could prove nothing
against them and would not even promise
to bo on band to prosecute tho prisoners if
they were bound over. But they were sat
isfied that Murphy and Smith were uudosir-
able citizens and they brought charges of
vagrancy against them in the court of
Justice Robinson. The court lined the
prisoners one hundred dollors and costs and
grauted them a stay of execution on condl
tion that they left town iu four hours, which
they promised to do.

land about five years ago, went to work, and
by steady employment and economy soon
saved enough money to send for his mother,
sisters, brothers and a friend in Ireland,
who arrived here ia duo timo, occupied a
house which the young man had rented and
comfortably furnished beforehand, and de
pended upon him principally for support, lie
was a stout, healthy young man, of steady
habits, a hard worker, an affectionate son
and brother, an examplary citizen in every
way. He has sevoral uncles living here
who have charge of his remains.
- "Karl" at tho opera house last night
was a surprise to many who bad been led

the finest ever given in this city. But tbe
perform was also good. Charles A. Gard
ner is perfect in his impersonation of the
true German type after a short residence in
this country; and Miss Patti Posa con
vinced the audience that she had earned
well the high praise accorded hor by the
press everywhere. Thero whole troupe was
a good one and gave one of pleaaantest
performances of tho season. Tbe house
was a very large one and all wore evidently
well pleased. "Karl" in his many little

A young man named Patrick Carmody
employed in the Illinois Central freight
yards here, got both legs cut off at the
thighs, by the wheels of the tenders of an
engine, yesterday shortly after noon.
Carmody was standing in a coal car shovel
ing coal from the car into the box near the
round house. A switch engine backed
down on the samo track to get water from
tho tank which was several car-lengths
above. Caimody, thinking that the engine
would stop at the tank, paid no attention
to her; but tho fireman had charge of the
engine aud be could not stop her in time.
The engiuo struck tho car in which Car
mo ty was at work, and ho was knocked
over, falling with his legs across the track
right in front of the teuder, tho wheels of
which passed over him, nearly severing
both legs near ths body. Help was near at
baud; the injured man was conveyed to
St. Mary's Infirmary and Drs. Parker noti
fied of the occurrence. The Doctors
arrived promptly but the patient
was not in a condition to bear
amputation and ouly medical attention was
given bim. Tho poor fellow is a young
man about twenty years of ago, came hen;

SOME BAD BLUNDERS.
The Democrats in tho Illinois legislature
have been making a brave fight againwt
excessive appropriations and have thereby
excited the ire of tbe Republican machine
and its organs. Anioug the organs the
Sorinptielil Journal has been loudcHt in its
denunciation of the Democrats and most
busy to prove that retrenchment by Demo
crats was not retrenchment and that Dem
ocrats are not good managers of public af
fairs. In its efforts to prove this latter
proposition, and also to prove that Demo
crats, where in power, do not practice the
economy they preach, it sees itself driven to
the extremity ot citing the condition of
counties und towns in various parts of the
state, which it says were run deeply in debt
by Democratic local governments. But tbe
Journal is unfortunate in the selection of
the towns and counties. In tbo first place,
its list is not nearly bo large as that of debt
ridden Republican counties, published iu
rebuttal by the Register, and, secondly, it
is very accurate in its statement of facts.
Among tho cities and counties which, ac
cording to the Journal's statoment, were
run deeply iuto debt by Democrats, aro
Chicago and Cook county, Peoria, and
oria county, Cairo and Alexander county.
'Cairo's debt," says the Journal, "is $325,-
000; and Alexander county's entire debt is
MS 1,500, and then adds:
'It is somowhat significant that Messrs.
Sextan uud Crafts of Cook, and Mr. Linegar,
of Alexander, are among the loudest in
praise ot Democratic administrations, which
have heaped unbearable burdeus of debt
upon the people of their respective districts
and in denunciation of Republican policy
in the State, which has paid off a large
State debt and maintained public honor
and confidence, besides accumulating a
very considerable surplus of money in tho
The facts io tho cases of Chicago, Cook
county and Peoria are that their debt, such
as it is, was incurred under Republican ad
ministrations and greatly reduced under
subsequent Democratic administrations.
Alexander county is a Republican county,
has gone Republican at every election for
a number of years, and has yet two Repub
licans to ono Democrat on the board of
commissioners. Cairo has had a Republi
can mayor continuously for ten years or
more, and tho principal influence that has
tended to reduce her debt about two hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars during the
last few years has been a little Democratic
leaven thrown into the city couucil.
Tho Journal should also be rcmlndod
that such of our cities and counties, which
are heavily laden with debt, are so, to a not
inconsiderable extent, because of tho ex
cessive stato taxes extorted from them by a
Republican state government, which re
sulted In the accumulation, contrary to
law, of thst "vory considerable sum," (sev
eral millions, we believe) in the stato treas
ury" of which the Journal has the effront
ery to boast. Tbe Journal will sue, if it
wants to, that Its argument is not only very
luaccurato as to Tacts, but also self snnull
ing and that it reflects very unfavorably
upon tnose wnom me journal seeks to de
fend and extol.
